Flew into the Scilly Isles on Saturday 28 June from Perranporth.

This was my second visit, but the first time my wife and our greyhounds had been and we were all totally smitten by this charming island and its wonderful airfield.

The flight from Perranporth is easy - follow the Land's End, LND VOR to St Martin's lighthouse VRP and then to the airfield. You will get a service from Culdrose, Lands End and Isles of Scilly for the whole crossing.

Whichever runway you land on, expect to land uphill at about 1 in 13, and go over the top to a similar downhill! The airfield is on top of the main hill and is actually easier than it sounds - most "tricky" airfields are because you concentrate that much harder.

Grass parking adjacent to the terminal and a charge of about £22 for landing/parking is very reasonable, but don't forget, there is no Avgas available at the airfield. Lots of commercial flights (S61 helicopters, Twin Otters and Islanders - about 18 movements/hour whilst we were there) so you can be entertained whilst eating at the outdoor tables of the super cafe with magnificent views over the island. Good food at a very reasonable cost.

A short walk takes you into town and you can feel the relaxation as you seem to go back in time.

Definitely one of my favourite UK airfields - just wish it was closer to our base in Blackpool....!

Green grass, blue sky, blue sea, what more could you ask for -- apart from a flatter runway... ;-)

Pretty spot, but watch that slope! Chocks (or whooping great tiedown blocks) provided and essential!

Just departing runway 09 on St. Mary's. How short is that runway, I thought that we would never get airborne!

Rwy 33 Final Approach
31 Jan 04
Final approach to r/w 33 at St Marys. Not too apparent from the photo, but watch out for the upslope on the first half of the runway.
Runway 27 is half tarmac, then half grass.

St Mary's Airfield is very GA friendly and we can recommend visiting the islands. ATC ask if you to have GPS or DME and are with you from 20 miles out. Tie downs available, and necessary. Lots of help offered about weather conditions. Accommodation reservations essential in Summer. We stayed on St Agnes at Troy Town campsite, right next to the beach - 15 minute ferry from St Mary's. Lots of info on website: www.scillyonline.co.uk
